THE INLET WAS HER OUTLET!

sheila sea

i think it was June.

maybe July?

there were fireworks kiosks

popping up like daisies

in empty lots.

I could see them

from our window.

beyond that

the bay lay open

her innards

spilled milky white

bobbing passively

as if the breeze

could speak

and he spoke ocean.

I always focused on the inlet.

inside

the walls were butter yellow.

you picked the color

even though

i told you,

matter of factly,

it didn’t suit me.

you laughed

and said

well that’s unusual,

for someone

with such a sunny disposition.

i miss them now,

much to my chagrin.

I suppose you can have

this one

oblivious victory.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
